The Maple Tree Foundation

For Mountain Communities


Our vision l.jpg
Our Vision

To help deprived and underserved mountain communities live healthy, productive, and peaceful lives with sustainable resource development programs that provide basic services, livelihood development, and education.


Where are we l.jpg

MTF programs are focused primarily on marginalized communities in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

These communities are post conflict areas. Our strategy is to promote development to sustain peace

Where are we?


Our opportunity l.jpg
Our Opportunity communities in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

  • In the past 10 years, responsible resource development in Canatuan, Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte in the Philippines has provided a few fortunate mountain communities with the opportunity to improve the quality of their lives with sustainable development programs.

  • Where once hunger was common, families have established vegetable gardens that supply their daily food needs and provide additional income.

  • Families who could only dream of sending their children to school or seeing a doctor now have access to primary and college education and basic health care.


Our belief l.jpg
Our Belief communities in Siocon, Zamboanga del Norte.

  • The Maple Tree Foundation believes that these stories of hope can be replicated and expanded.

  • Our approach is to target communities in need adjacent to communities where sustainable development has taken hold and replicate the programs that beat hunger, protect the body and train the mind.

  • Now is the time to replicate and expand.


Why focus on our communities l.jpg

High rates of nutritional deficiency disorders, infections and parasitic diseases are commonly found.

Many communities have suffered the devastating effects of past local armed conflicts.

Education remains an elusive dream. While schools exist, facilities are minimal, books are almost non-existent, and many children attend school undernourished. Most students fortunate enough to reach Grade 5 or 6 often have the literacy of Grade 2 or 3.  

  Slash and burn agriculture and illegal mining have left many communities with few benefits and many negative environmental and social impacts

Why focus on our Communities?
